Access to prescription medication

A few months ago a friend of mine let her son have a few friends sleep over. Not thinking anything about it, she left a prescription for pain meds in her bathroom, which was upstairs and not near the boys. They had a bathroom downstairs they could use.

The next day she looked and happened to notice the entire bottle was gone. She could never prove it, but she was pretty sure one of the teens snagged them. Since then she only allows one kid to spend the night at a time, no more big sleep overs.

I don't disagree with her tactic, I would have probably put the kibosh on sleep overs for quite awhile, period. That said, she doesn't plan to lock up her medications even after this happened.

What would you do? Lock up the medications? Hide them? Nothing?
